Baked Onions with Thyme Butter (Keto)

This is a delicious and interesting side dish using baked onions drizzled with a flavoured herb butter. The onions bake away in a tightly-packed foil parcel down to a sweet, roasted flavour and the thyme butter lifts it to a sensational level!

Broccoli and Brown Butter Mash (Keto)

OK, this is probably not my greatest picture, but the flavour of this broccoli mash makes up for what you see as a bowl of bright green mush! I simply mashed up cooked broccoli and folded through glorious ‘browned’ butter before seasoning and serving. Browned butter (called Beurre Noisette in French culinary terms) is basically butter (grass-fed only for us, obvs) that has been melted down and kept on the heat until the milk solids separate and start to gently brown, flavouring the butter. The butter is then strained through cheesecloth or food-grade muslin, discarding the milk solids. You are left with a deeply-flavoured, beautifully nutty melted (and very versatile) butter that will blow your mind! If you choose to always have a batch of little set browned butter cubes on hand, I have a Beurre Noisette recipe on the site which is portioned after setting and can be used in numerous ways.

Broccoli and Bacon Cheese Bakes (Keto)

I posted a recipe of Cream-baked Broccoli a little while ago (it’s a lush recipe: rich, filling and full-flavoured, please try it). However, I wanted to take the concept up a notch and add crispy bacon and Cheddar. Can we all take a moment to high-five the keto way-of-life: what other “diets” can encourage adding bacon and cheese?… Anyway, I created this recipe in 4 individual little stoneware pots (because its SO cute) but you can make this same recipe in an appropriately-sized dish if you choose to – as long as the end-result serves 4 people in even-sized portions as that is how the macros were calculated..

Its difficult to communicate to readers how yummy something is. Sometimes I just shut down from lack of descriptive words (and I hope that my telling you this will inspire you to try it). Here, I simply baked par-cooked broccoli in seasoned double cream and the result was… well, incredible. I have no other words… this cream-baked broccoli will hopefully blow your hair back as much as it did mine. Be sure to also check out all the Side Dishes on this site.

Coconut-roasted Cauliflower (Keto)

Keto Coconut Cauliflower

I love the Coconut-roasted Broccoli that Funnyman whips up, but doing the same thing with cauliflower is equally incredible! At only two-ingredients, this will likely be a favourite in your home as much as it is in ours. Quick, uncomplicated … and simply heavenly. This recipe will serve 3 people as a side veg option on a keto diet, but Funnyman and I scoff the whole lot between the two of us alongside our Peppered Lamb Ribs quite often. He has both dishes waxed, so these are the nights I put my feet up and do nothing but watch him cook for ME for a change…
